The "Duoline" slide is a simple but effective text slide that holds two lines of text (surprise!) that animate from the edges in towards the center. Use it to spice up a longer sequence of text slides or as a segment divider or more of an exclamation.
The text can either be in "Large" text or scale up big, in relation to word length. It will scale uniformly over the two lines, so they will get the same point size when scaled.
If you use just one line of text it will animate in at the vertical center, so for a cool effect, you could use alternating lines on subsequent "Duolines" to create an effect where every other word or sentence builds from opposite directions.
Both text fields hold 20 characters, so the slide type is – as we mentioned – better used as a sort of segue between different parts or as an exclamation effect.
Behavior and usage
The Line 1 and Line 2 fields hold the slide text. They are per default set to "Large" in theme color "White," and that can be overridden as usual.
The styling defaults to a non-fade tint that uses theme color "Darken" at an opacity of 65%. That can be changed under "Main asset styling."
Credit text is derived from the credit field in the asset browser. Since all assets in Story Engine are their instance, you could use the credit field for additional information as well, such as a source reference or other. This field is not directly editable from the storyboard view. Instead, you access it through the asset browser’s detail view. You can turn off the credit text altogether from the storyboard side pane if you wish.
